I have installed PG and the following apps:
- Sabnzbd
- Sonarr
- Radarr
- Plex

I am able to setup and use sabnzbd, sonarr and radarr correctly using mnt/unionfs/movies.
However due to some reason, plex is not able to identify any movie files on scan.
I have checked the respective gdrive folder and I can definitely see a movie under the /gdrive/movies, however plex does not find anything.

Have attached the screegrabs for reference.

Thanks.

Another strange behavior that I have observed (probably not related to this) is that under portainer, plex is the only container with the status as "Healthy", all others are showing up as "Running".

Not sure if it has anything to do with that.

Set plex scan to /unionfs/movies not /mnt. If using /mnt and want delete permissions (quality upgrades) I *think* you need to direct it to /mnt/tdrive(or gdrive)/tv & movies. Many things changed recently and I'm not entirely up to speed. :)

Edit: Portainer won't show health status for other containers, only plex. Can disregard as being a problem.
